The Book Club
Ivy Creek's NEW club for students in 5th grade. The Book Club is for students who enjoy reading, enjoy working with younger students, and want to make a positive impact on someone else's life. At our meetings we will learn reading strategies to use when working with younger students. The Book Club members will then spend 3-5 days a week reading to, reading with, and listening to younger students read. The Book Club members will be assigned one or two classrooms to work with from 7:45-8:15. Members should be reliable, get to school on time (between 7:45-8:00), and want to work with others. The club is limited to 15 5th graders. There is NO fee to join. All materials will be provided. Please return the application, a teacher recommendation form, and a homeroom teacher form to Dr. Nagy by September 13th.
